My Chemical Romance Announces Reunion
My Chemical Romance announced a reunion show. The band’s first performance since 2012 will take place at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles on December 20. No additional details of what else, if anything, the group has in store have been revealed.
The New Jersey-bred emo band was formed in 2001. My Chemical Romance released four studio albums starting with I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002 and concluding with 2010’s Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys. The band posted the following statement on their website in March of 2013 confirming a break-up:
Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.
My Chemical Romance last performed on May 19, 2012 in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Tickets for MCR’s return go on sale Friday, November 1 at 12 p.m. PT via AXS.com.
